Overview

A fresh, light-hearted approach to trimming away excess clutter

If your home is like most homes, it has been accumulating unwanted "stuff" that, like body fat, makes your life more difficult and less happy. Wouldn't it be nice if you could put your home on a diet? This humorous but wonderfully practical book tackles the clutter dilemma by drawing an analogy to the familiar struggle so many of us have to lose weight-and presents a clutter-reduction program that gives both immediate gratification and longer-term maintenance guidance.

o Room by room, the book examines how clutter limits your lifestyle and creates problems-and offers simple ideas and solutions for eliminating unwanted possessions.

o The authors suggest ways to change clutter-accumulating behavior; show how to efficiently organize the possessions you need; and examine dozens of ways to dispose of clutter.

o Always the emphasis is on uncomplicated, inexpensive solutions that are easy to implement-and that produce life-changing results.

Giving serious advice that doesn't take itself too seriously, Put Your House on a Diet will soon have your home slim, trim, and clutter-free.
